Silicon is the most common metalloid. Metal Silicon is a grey and lustrous semi-conductive metal that is used to manufacture steel and aluminum alloy, solar cells, and microchips.
High-purity silicon metal is used in the chemical industry for producing silicon compounds, silicon wafers, solar cells and electronic semiconductors.
Most metallurgical silicon metal is used as an alloying agent in the aluminium industry due to its ability to increase the strength of aluminium.
